What does the TD SIPP offer?
Pensions are notoriously complex, and it’s no wonder that many people are put off making decisions about their future retirement. But a Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP) offers a low cost, accessible alternative and gives you control to create your own personal retirement strategy.
- Transfer existing pension benefits to your TD SIPP
- Tax relief on your contributions, depending on your UK tax rate
- 25% tax free lump sum withdrawal on retirement
- Start from as little as £400
- Make one-off or regular contributions
- Hold cash in nine major currencies
- 24/7 access to market information and research tools
- Wide range of investment options
Enjoy greater choice and freedom
Using the same fast and simple platform as the Trading account, the TD SIPP allows you to manage your own pension, making the decisions as to when and where you invest. This means you can see the value of your retirement fund at any moment. You can invest in a wide range of investment types, including:
- Funds (Unit Trusts & OEICs)
- UK Equities
- International Stocks
- AIM Securities
- Bonds & Gilts
- Investment Trusts
- Exchange Traded Products
- Hold cash in nine currencies
What are the SIPP contribution limits?
You can receive tax relief on your personal contributions up to 100% of your earnings. There is a limit on the contributions you can pay and receive tax relief on called the annual allowance, which is currently £50,000 per year (but is reducing to £40,000 from 6 April 2014), although you can carry forward any unused allowance from the previous three tax years.
Additional tax benefits
There is no capital gains tax to pay on the investment growth in your SIPP. For dividend income on UK equities, if you're a basic rate taxpayer you're deemed to have paid tax at 10% on the dividend income whether inside or outside the SIPP. This 'tax credit' cannot be refunded for SIPP investments. If you're a higher rate taxpayer you'd normally pay tax on dividend income at 32.5% or 37.5%. Inside a SIPP you won't get back the 10% dividend tax credit, but you won't have to pay any additional tax.
